Merry Christmoose

Just a couple more days till Christmas and I keep running back in my craft room for some last minute stamping!

This time it was to make this card for my husband to give to someone at work.  He wanted a fun way to give a gift card and I knew that I had a few of these great
Gift Card Holder Square Scallop Card from Creative Cuts and More in my stash.

I decorated the front with this cute Holly Moose by Eureka Stamps.
And then I finished the inside with this cute saying.

This die cut card comes with the slot all ready cut out for the gift card!!!

Simple Season's Greetings

Are you ready for Christmas???

I think I am!  All the gifts are wrapped and the cards are mailed.  The kids helped me clean the house and the in laws arrive tonight.  I will do the final grocery shopping tomorrow.

I made this card last week but haven't had a chance to share it so I thought I'd share it today.  Such a simple design but the image is so pretty it really doesn't need much else!

I especially like how the bow turned out!

Here's a closer look at the pretty cardinal.  This image is available in red rubber and digi from Eureka Stamps and is part of the Tender Thoughts line.

Hi there...can you believe Christmas is only a few days away????!!!! Small panic attack coming on! Actually I am ALMOST done shopping. I have 4 more gifts to buy, but a couple of them I don't need until after Christmas day, so I have time. My hubby and I are planning on doing all the kids' wrapping on Tuesday night, so we should be good. Then there is the trip to the grocery store...lets just say...that is going to be an adventure. I can't go until Friday, and I will have all 3 of my fun! I wanted to share a card I made using the Poinsettia Flower stamp from Biblical Impressions. This image is our "stamp of the month" for December. I stamped the image and colored with watercolor crayons. BUT...I did some paper piecing on the leaves of the flower. The PP is all from my stash...I believe it is SU. I added a rub-on, some stickles, and some little red gems to the corners. A very simple card, but that flower is so pretty alone, that you don't need much more. Well have a wonderful holiday week!

Christmas cards

How are you doing on your Christmas cards?
I was having a tough time deciding on a card to make and I was thinking I wouldn't get them done. Finally, a style ect. just hit me and I was set to go.

I decided to use the "Pine Sprig" (#15702) image from QKR Stampede.
I stamped it onto white card stock and colored them with water color crayons.
I used a few different colors of card stock with the image as a mat.
I then ran white card stock through my Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder.

Here is a close up that shows the embossed snowflakes better.
I use just a touch of gold Stickles on the bells to finish them off.
On the inside of the cards I used the digital image of
"Merry Christmas" (#6803) from Eureka! Stamps.
By using the digital image, I could adjust the size and change the color to match the card fronts.

I'm lovin' how they turned out!
Did you make Christmas cards this year? 
There's still time. 
Just pop into QKR Stampede, Eureka! Stamps or Biblical Impressions and pick out an image and a sentiment.
They can be quick and easy, especially if you purchase the digital images.

Thanks for stopping by today. Come again soon!

In the stamp shop, there are many biblical stamp, but also many other beautiful images can find her there. A visit is worthwhile in any case, yes you might like one or the other stamp.

Eureka! Stamps - Snowy Merry Christmas / Ribbons and Stars Border

It is not long until Christmas, so there is to see another Christmas card.
This card I've deliberately kept simple, and only in Bordaux red and silver, I like the color composition.

Today I will show you a Christmas card with two stamps from the stamp shop Eureka! Stamps.
They are the stamps Snowy Merry Christmas and Ribbon and Stars Border.
In the shop you can buy this stamp as rubber stamp or digi-stamp.

I stamped the two images and then I embossed this with silver embossingpowder.

Have a nice weekand

Stamping on a layout

Hello blog friends!

A while back I got a set of adorable alpha stamps called "Angel Alphabet" (#10502)  and "Watering Hearts" (#8403) from QKR Stampede
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the
"Angel Alphabet" and finally did it.
I stamped out "Kelsie Angel Baby" and colored it with water color crayons
In the center I used the "Watering Hearts" image.
These were perfect for this layout, as we called her that from the time she was born.
I'm way behind in my scrapbooking.  That little Angel Baby is getting close to 22 yrs old now.

I love how this layout turned out.  I love using stamping on layouts and this is a perfect example of one way that it can be done.

The "Angel Alphabet" can be used for so many different kinds of projects.  How cute would it be to use them to make a name plate for a little girl's room?!?!

QKR Stampede and it's sister company Eureka! Stamps have a lot of great angel images.  So pop on over to the stores and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have been inspired to use some of your stamps on your layouts.
Hope you'll stop by again soon.
